A left-handed opener, Morris played three Tests in 1991, against the then formidable West Indies. He found their pace attack difficult to handle, scoring 115 runs at an average of 19.16. He was Glamorgan's youngest captain at the age of 22 when appointed in 1986, and stood down from the role three years later to concentrate on his batting. He was reinstated as captain in 1993, and remained on the fringe of further Test selection for a number of years, without ever being selected again.

He worked for several years England and Wales Cricket Board, where he was technical coaching director, acting chief executive and deputy chief executive before being appointed to chief executive. In August 2013 he returned to his native Glamorgan as chief executive and director of cricket.
